Hello Everyone, our management initially contacted BBCollect to help on his recovery and sent them copy of documents, and they sent us a contract. Since the terms were not good, we never signed on with them and continued our recovery efforts by contacting the shipper/consignee/customer route and managed to recover the full amount due to us.

Today Baxter-Bailey sent us an email saying it was their efforts that got us the payment and want their fees and they will be sending us the invoice. They threatening us now by putting us on their alert if we don't pay them. We never hired them by signing their contract.

That's the danger you face when you deal with "pit bulls" like Baxter Bailey. If you do not have any type of signed contract for their service, then how could you be held responsible?

This is copy of their last email to us...

Your company contacted us, we didn’t contact you. We are a collection agency, which you sent the documents to for us to collect, and that is an implied contract.

Let’s stop with the banter back n forth and just let this play out over the next couple weeks.

F.Y.I….. I assure you everyone in the industry is aware of how we operate, and thankfully most of the 4500 carriers, brokers, and shippers we currently represent are credible and we don’t have this problem. Unfortunately we do receive claims from companies such as yours, and this won’t be the first time we have had to enforce our claim based off an implied contract.

So tell them you DID EXPECT to sign a contract before proceeding any further...

This is not an "implied contract" - it's extortion, plain and simple! They are trying to get money from you by using threats and intimidation. Why would an "implied" contract need to be followed by a written contract if, in their opinion, the implied contract was sufficient enough? Dumbasses......

For example, you go to a lawyer for your "free consultation". You discuss your case, show the lawyer your evidence, documents, etc.... Afterwards, you decide not to use that lawyer for your case. No retainer was signed and there was no futher communication between you and the lawyer regarding your case. Does that mean that after winning your case that this lawyer that was NOT retained or hired is owed a percentage of your settlement? NO WAY!

These guys are being bullies and committing a crime. Luckily, their email very clearly "implies" that extortion is their go-to tactic when someone decides not to use their services. As we all know, the only way to handle bullies is to fight back - harder! You should make it clear that if anyone from their company contacts you again, you will be contacting the FBI, local law enforcement wherever they are headquartered (and whoever else) and notifying them that Baxter Bailey is committing extortion and that, by their own admission in the above email, they have extorted many other innocent companies who chose not to use their services. You should also tell them that you will be using social media, news media and whoever else you can think of to make sure that no other innocent companies get extorted by Baxter Bailey.

Thanks Salma, we told them basically the same thing that if they go ahead with their threat of putting our company name on a DNU list, then we'll be free to do all in our power to show their true face to the trucking industry.
